If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each shared web hosting package deal which we provide, you'll be able to protect any content that you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you'll be all set to go. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be enabled instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the right login details. When various people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
